APPLICABILITY: 2015MY Legacy and Outback Models
SUBJECT: Service Procedure to Address a Wind Rushing Sound from the Rear Door Sash Area

 

INTRODUCTION

This bulletin provides a service procedure to address customer concerns of a wind rushing-type sound which seems to come from the rear door glass sash area.  Customers may report a concern with one or both rear doors.  It is only necessary to address the side with the confirmed condition. The door glass sash separates the main door glass from the small partition glass at the rear of each door.  The procedure involves replacement of the rear door glass run channel (weatherstrip), partition glass weatherstrip, and both the inner and outer door glass weatherstrips (sweeps).  In addition, 3 pre-cut pieces of self-adhesive EPT foam, 1 piece of non-woven tape (will be cut into 2 pieces) and a 320mm section of butyl tape will be added in specific locations.  To address a customer concern of a fluttering-type noise coming from the B-pillar area at highway speeds, see TSB 12-185-15 for installation of the 320mm section of butyl tape only.
